Dr. Amy Rapp
About Dr. Rapp
I am originally from Virginia, where I studied clinical psychology and dance in my undergraduate studies at Hollins University. I love movement – dance and martial arts in particular. I was a professional dancer and cheerleader for a NBDL team, and I currently get to spread my love of dance as I continue to teach at Colorado Ballet Society. I am also a psychological consultant for Stone Soup Games Development, a games development company based in Colorado Springs. I am a huge fan of action movies, nerdy stuff, and all things science fiction.
I earned my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology, Arlington Virginia campus. I was trained in forensic evaluation at the Institute of Law, Psychiatry, & Public Policy at University of Virginia. I received my internship training at Broughton Hospital in Morganton, North Carolina, where I specialized in clinical and forensic psychology. I received post-doctoral training in forensic psychology at West Central Georgia Regional Hospital in Columbus, Georgia, where I began an in-patient DBT program for the forensic units. I have been a licensed clinical psychologist at a local community mental health organization where I provided psychological assessment, case consultation, individual and group therapy. I specialize in working with patients with severe and persistent mental illness, forensic issues, Borderline Personality Disorder, and anxiety disorders (specifically OCD & Hoarding disorder).
Why work with Dr. Rapp?
My perspective on therapy is that it is important for me to meet you where you are, emotionally and mentally. You know yourself better than anyone else, so part of my job is to empower you to explore your knowledge of your world and your life. I will also equip you with some strategies to support that exploration. My job is to help you get to where you want to go, with confidence, passion, and support.
